Tomasco Indiana LLC is spending $20 million to expand its Winchester auto parts plant to supply the Honda Motor Co. assembly plant under construction at Greensburg, the company said today.
The Winchester plant will grow to 305 jobs from 180, and add 122,000 square feet to the existing 202,000 square feet. It stamps, welds and assembles parts ranging from hood locks to fuel filler pipes, and supplies Honda plants in Ohio, Alabama and Canada.
Jobs at the Winchester plant average $11 to $12 an hour, said Assistant Vice President Tim Peterson.
Tomasco received $1.8 million in state and local economic development incentives.
The company, based in Columbus, Ohio, is 70 percent owned by Masuda Manufacturing, 10 percent by Marugan and 10 percent by Bestex—all of Japan. Tomasco Mulciber of Columbus, Ohio, owns the balance.
